This is definitely not a normal BMW 1 Series Convertible (118i) of the E88 series. Even if you, as a layman, may not see it directly at first glance. Because under the bonnet The N3 90-liter in-line four-cylinder of the 43i is not in the M2,0 E118 style, but the brilliant one High speed V8 (S65) from the M3 of the E90 generation. And it fits in so well that you might think it was installed straight from the factory. Apart from Motorswap Incidentally, the convertible still has it front and rear subframes of the M3 and he also likes the chic 19 inch M Performance Rims with Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 Tires. There is one behind it StopTech brake system. At the rear, the 1er shows itself with a M apron including M3 style Sports exhaust system with four tailpipes and no longer really suitable is the original one 118i lettering on the tailgate.
BMW 1 Series Cabriolet with M3 V8
There's one in front too apron installed with E92-M3 optics. By the way, the new engine is attached to one Six-speed manual from an E90 M3 and also in the inner space there are some new details. About one M steering wheel and a M instrument cluster and between the shifter and the cup holder is a Knopf to adjust the three-stage KW damper installed. With 420 PS and 400 Newton meters torque and only 1.620 kilograms Tare the 1 Series Cabriolet is of course extremely good. How good, that's in the video by AutoTopNL to see. Have fun with it.
